In a twist for 2022, the award-winning Calendar now contains 24 individual sticks of incredibly high-quality, vintage cheese, encased in a recyclable compact box, in nine mouth-watering varieties from award-winning cheese specialists, Ilchester.

Cheese Advent Calendar 2022 Lineup

This year’s scrumptious selection:

Ilchester Cheddar with Apple, Onion and Sage – A versatile and uniquely flavored British Cheddar, carefully blended for a well-rounded deliciously sweet Apple flavor, with scrumptious savory notes from the onion and aromatic sage. Pairs perfectly with turkey and cranberry sauce.

Applewood – A real English treasure, Applewood is made in the West Country from British cheddar and has a delicate smoky flavor and a lovely smooth texture, with a sprinkling of paprika for good measure.

Applewood Vintage PDO Aged for 12 months – This delicious cheese is made from traditional hand-turned British Farmhouse Cheddar. It has a delicate smoky flavor with an exquisitely smooth, rich creaminess that melts in the mouth. Creamy yellow in color, with a sprinkling of paprika.

Ilchester Mature Cheddar – Ilchester’s Cheddar is made in the West Country, close to where Cheddar originated in the Mendip Hills. Take a bite and let the creaminess melt into your mouth, with its earthy tangy notes.

Ilchester Vintage PDO Cheddar – Carefully matured, this cheddar is made in the West Country near the Mendip Hills. With a drier texture to standard cheddar due to the maturing process, you may be lucky to discover some calcium crystals which add crunch to the texture.

Ilchester Double Gloucester – This is a hard cheese with a savory, mellow flavor. You may know it as the famous cheese that is rolled down Coopers Hill annually in May for the UK’s most extreme cheese rolling race!

Ilchester Red Leicester – Smooth and nutty! Add a splash of color to your cheese board with this traditional English cheese, based on a classic Cheddar recipe.

Ilchester Aged Red Leicester – This traditional English cheese has been carefully matured for a minimum of 9 months giving it a distinguishable smooth, tangy and nutty taste.

Mexicana – This cheese combines a fiery mix of bell, jalapeño and chilli peppers, carefully blended with British Cheddar and a secret mix of Mexican spices.

The PDO (protected designation of origin) label is a type of geographical indication that means that a cheese was made in a specific region according to traditional methods.
